from where you can see numerous small settlements (the Castelli), that tell us about the well-known medieval landscape phenomenon of the encastellation, following which, throughout Italy, historic villages that are perched on raised and dominant positions have seen their first stone laid down. Today we appreciate these castles and villages as beautiful and surprising creations of the human hand, so diverse and so characteristic of European, and in a special way, italian countrysides. The landscape around tells a story of human presence since the Paleolithic and nature is intact with its forests and fields, tree lined streets and ancient agricultural traditional settings such as the "married vines", landscape elements that show us the peasant ingenuity aimed to earn the most from earth gifts. Views, glimpses and perspectives are moving, accompanied by the unceasing chanting of bee eaters  that come here every spring as a result of migrations along the Mediterranean Basin.
